  • 1. THE TWO WORLDS By: Elder Don Ellis "Through faith we understand that the worldswere framed by the word of God, so that thingswhich are seen were not made ofthings which do appear. " Hebrews 11:3
  • 2. In Hebrews 11:1-3, "Now faith is thesubstance of things hoped for, the evidence ofthings not seen. For by it the elders obtained agood report. Through faith we understand thatthe worlds were framed by the word of God,so that things which are seen were not made ofthings which do appear."God, in His great wisdom, has given us faith tounderstand that He has framed (or brought togood order or harmony) two worlds which Ibelieve is the old and new covenant families.God is the author and fmisher of our faith, thebeginning and the end. In Acts, 15: 18 it iswritten, "Known unto God are all his worksfrom the beginning ofthe world." Speaking ofthe Old Covenant, 1 Corinthians 10: 11 reads,"Now all these things happened unto them forensamples: and they are written for ouradmonition, upon whom the ends ofthe worldare come." Hebrews 9:26 mentioned thatJesus came once in the end of the world; heappeared to put away sin by the sacrifice ofhimself. God began the Old Covenant by .calling Abraham and hinl alone, as a seed tobring about a great family who were finallycalled Israelites. Romans 4: 17 states, "(As it is 1
  • 3. written, I have made thee a father of manynations,) before him whom he believed, evenGod, who quickeneth the dead, and calleththose things which be not as though theywere." In verse 19, "And being not weak infaith, he considered not his own body nowdead, when he was about an hundred years old,neither yet the deadness of Sarahs womb."Abraham and Sarah were only dead in thesense that they were unable to procreate. Godgave them this life by faith, and in this sense,this great family came from the dead.Galatians 3: 16 reads, "Now to Abraham andhis seed were the promises made. He saithnot, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one,And to thy seed, which is Christ." Abrahamwas the seed of the Israelites but not everyIsraelite was the lineage of this seed. Byelection it was not given to Ishmael but toIsaac. And through Isaac, by election, it wasgiven to Jacob and not Esau that the purposeof God might stand. Jacobs name waschanged to Israel after he wrestled with theangel and prevailed. This great family,through Israel (or Jacob), became the twelvetribes of the Old Covenant. This seed ofAbraham fmally came to the seed that God has 2
  • 4. in mind, or let me say has in His book, andthat seed was Christ who is the beginning ofthe New Covenant. Now the seed of Christ isnot human sperm, neither is it as according tothe election, made before the foundation of theworld (Romans 8:29-30), but it is broughtabout by the quickening of the word of God,Luke 8:10-11, "And he said, unto you it isgiven to know the mysteries ofthe kingdom ofGod; but to others in parables: that seeingthey might not see, and hearing they might notunderstand. Now the parable is this; The seedis the word of God." There is a greatmisunderstanding as to the seed that bringsforth a life which is found in the NewCovenant. Jesus, in John 6:63, explains this tohis unbelieving disciples who are fmding itdifficult to understand that when he ascends upto where he was before as the high priest, hewill make it plain to them that have the seed(or word) of God sown in their hearts. Heexplains that his words are spirit and they arelife.In the Old Covenant, God wrote hiscommandments on tables of stone and theywere copied into scrolls which were to be read 3
  • 5. and obeyed. In the New Covenant, Godexplains in Hebrews 8:10-13 the workings ofthe New Covenant. It is new in that he writeshis laws into their heart and mind. He willbecome unto them a God and they shall be hispeople. This is not teaching this is to be bornof the Spirit. This is a new and living way(Hebrews 10:20); in this New Covenant, you"no longer teach every man or neighbor toknow the Lord, for they shall all know him,from the least to the greatest." We learn thatwe are very great sinners and that God is holyand righteous and that we need to be saved bygrace. Jesus is then revealed to us as havingbeen our Savior and that we are saved. This isrevealed by faith in his blood. Hebrews 9:14reads, "How much more shall the blood ofChrist, who through the eternal spirit offeredhimself, without spot to God, purge yourconscience from dead works to serve the livingGod."Now let us go to John 5:21, "For as the fatherraises up the dead, and quickeneth them; evenso the Son quickeneth whom he will." Thedead the father quickened began at Abraham.The word "quicken" in the Greek means to 4
  • 6. give life as well as to become lively. Someexamples of this are found in Psalms 119:40,"Behold I have longed after thy precepts:quicken me in thy righteousness." Also in 119:50, "This is my comfort in my afflictions:for thy word hath quickened me." In rightlydividing the truth, we know this is not a persondead in sin, asking god to give him eternal lifeor to be born again. Only Gods covenantpeople can understand this. This is Godturning over to Christ, as our High Priest, thejudgment and watch-care ofthe New Covenantjust as he was the King and Savior and Priestofthe Old Covenant. Israel did not need aking because they already had one. Theydidnt need a man to be a Savior; they alreadyhad one. Jesus is now the Lord Jesus Christ ofthe New Covenant Kingdom and can give thekingdom to whomsoever he will just the sameas God could. He can also put out of hiskingdom evil doers and unbelievers the sameas God. They are equal in power and glory.David saw this in a great vision which isreflected in the saying, "The Lord said to myLord, sit thou at my right hand." This was saidin Hebrew in the Old Testament and in Greekin the New Testament. Paul explains this in 5
  • 7. 2Corinthians 3:3-13, "For as much as ye,aremanifestly declared to be the epistle of Christministered by us, written not with ink, but withthe Spirit of the living God; not in tables ofstone, but in the fleshy tables of the heart.And such trust have we through Christ to God­ward: Not that we are sufficient of ourselves;but our sufficiency is of God; who has alsomade us able ministers of the new testament;not of the letter, but of the Spirit: for the letterkilleth, but the spirit giveth life. But if theministration of death, written and engraven instones, was glorious, so that the children ofIsrael could not stedfastly behold the face ofMoses for the glory of his countenance; whichglory was to be done away: how shall not theministration of the spirit be rather glorious?For ifthe ministration of condemnation beglory, much more doth the ministration ofrighteousness exceed in glory. For even thatwhich was made glorious had no glory in thisrespect, by reason of the glory which thatexcelleth. For if that which is done away wasglorious, much more that which remaineth isglorious. 6
  • 8. Seeing then that we have such hope, we usegreat plainness of speech: and not as Moseswhich put a veil over his face, that the childrenof Israel could not stedfastly look to the end ofthat which is abolished ..." 7
